The 4th of July is just two days away, so we thought we would publish our annual 4th of July styling inspiration post. You can see last years by clicking here. This time around, each of us switched denim colours to create our looks. Jennifer, Jonathan and I all did an outfit in red, white and blue, centered around jeans, while Chanelle stuck with the colour theme, but styled a skirt. You can see each of our looks within this post. Happy of 4th July everyone!
Olivia Palermo posed for some photos for the paparazzi while she was hailing a cab in Soho in New York City last week.
We have been trying to figure out these jeans that Olivia wore for some time, and Jonathan came across them yesterday on the Zara website. You will be pleased to know they are Zara’s ankle zip skinny jeans and they are very affordable! I love the coat and the heels she paired them with too! Buy these jeans online at Zara for $59.90.

The camouflage trend has been trickling in little by little the past couple of seasons, but this season it is hitting full force. Just because they are a print, it doesn’t mean they are lacking in details either. Brands such as Textile Elizabeth and James and Current/Elliott have incorporated zippers while April, May included seaming details. If you are looking for just a classic skinny in the print, they also have that.
The cool thing about this trend is that it is not limited to just jeans. Current/Elliott has also released their Biker Jacket in a denim camo that you can pair with any of your lightweight dress or even some jeans for the double denim look. There is also no limitation when it comes to color. Along with the classic fatigue green, brands such as Zara and Textile Elizabeth and James have also come out with pairs in blue as well as black and white. Which one’s do you fancy the most? You can see all of the styles and where to buy them below.
I have been asked by a few dedicated denim readers over time for my opinion on cheaper denim brands. I know here at DenimBlog we mainly only deal with premium denim as usually these are the brands which pay most attention to fit, details, denim and washes, however, I also understand that not everyone can afford the price tag that premium denim comes with. It is usually in the region of $180 and upwards, so it can be quite daunting to spend so much money on a pair of jeans.
This leaves you with two options, both of which I do myself. You can either buy your premium denim in the sale or on deal websites as outlined in my Cheap Designer Jeans post or you can opt for a cheaper denim option. When you do choose to go with the latter option, not all of the brands will have a good fit, a great quality denim or feel really nice to wear, so (like I have been asked) I am giving you my opinion on the jeans I wear and the jeans that I think are a great purchase for under $100! As you know, I am really fussy and particular when it comes to having great fitting jeans, so hopefully you will like this post as I am listing the cheaper brands that are definitely worth the money.
